Selected Works

  

"My work explores perspectives of reality, spaces, and emotional states, by combining internal structures of the body with external bodies of the natural world – reflecting on cycles of mood, sensory hypersensitivity, restoration, and decay."

"I mostly work with a pointillism technique, which involves delicately layering thousands of individual ink dots to build textures."

  

"During the lockdown period, I wanted to try working in a way that created a sort of sensory grounding through tactile experience for my own well-being. To do this, I have been creating sculptures that combine clay, driftwood, and dried flowers from the garden."

"In drawing, I also experiment with contrasting pointillism textures with different mediums, to toy with binaries and cycles."
